Compiling Python 3 on OS X Snow Leopard

Default configure and build dumped curious errors, a simple environment setting fixed it.

  ./Configure --Prefix=/usr/local/python/3.1.1 --enable-shared

then a "make" produced a bunch of errors:

warning: #warning Building for Intel with Mac OS X Deployment Target < 10.4 is invalid. warning: #warning Building for Intel with Mac OS X Deployment Target < 10.4 is invalid.

The fix is easy:

make distclean
export MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.6
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/python/3.1.1 --enable-shared 
make

 

builds successfully.
